Gracie Barra Yeovil

Unit 7 Edward Close Houndstone Business Park, Yeovil BA22 8RU, UK – 07702 576303

From the first time I stepped through the door at Gracie Barra Yeovil, I was made to feel genuinely welcome. The environment that coach Sam has created supports every student in their goals. Everyone is there to learn and have fun doing so. Jiu-Jitsu is great for keeping fit, building self-confidence, learning a practical self-defence and meeting new people. After every session, I can't wait to go back again. The coaching is top class and the friendly team atmosphere makes learning easier. I can't recommend Gracie Barra Yeovil highly enough. Try it!

Great club, been training here nearly a year now and its like having a second family. And we are always welcoming of new comers! If you just want to get fit and have some fun, learn self defence or train to compete in BJJ tournaments this is the place!
